Coca-Cola made this film to promote Coke use on the job. Three main ideas are expressed: (1) Workers must be spoken to in very simple language; (2) Replace bottles in the rack when you're finished with them; and (3) Mild stimulants go well with production. Contains many images of people, especially male and female workers on the job, drinking Coca-Cola; people eating lunch in a variety of industrial surroundings.03:54:35:23 Young woman in 1950s style one-piece bathing suit fluffs pad of beach...

This engaging Kodachrome drama (formatted for television broadcast) from the Union Pacific ostensibly deals with safety at railroad grade crossings, but it's also about much more: youth's feeling of invulnerability; the highway patrolman as an authority figure; the look of the rural and urban West in the late 1950s; the urge to speed through a sparsely populated agricultural landscape; and the train's role as farmer's servant and potential killer. This film was made just five years after The...

This film, a combination of animated cartoon and live action, shows young children what to do in case of an atomic attack. The film opens with "Bert the Turtle" wobbling down the street and singing a song, "Duck and Cover." When there is a bright flash, Bert immediately ducks into his shell covering. The narrator explains that when there is a bright flash -- brighter than the sun -- children should follow Bert's example. The film shifts to a classroom of first or second...
